Designed by Tinker Hatfield inspired by West African Tribal culture and the Air Huarache, the Air Jordan 7 was worn by MJ while playing for the Dream Team, winning a second NBA Championship, and a third NBA MVP.
The Air Jordan 7 “Raptor” was originally released in 1992 that has also been retro-released in 2002, 2009 (DMP) and 2012 (shown here). The shoe features a Black nubuck upper with True Red and Club Purple accents. It gets its nickname from its similarity to the Toronto Raptors team colors.
Released in 2006, the Air Jordan 7 “Citrus” was one of the first non-original colorways of the Jordan 7 to release. It features a Black nubuck upper highlighted with Citrus and Variety Red contrasting accents. The signature detail is its Bright Orange contrasting stitching throughout, a feature not seen on most colorways of the model.
